    Those Centurys look great and I like how you are wearing them. Hats off to Kapital for being so imaginative with the color and texture.

    Thanks. They really do deserve a closeup... I'm interested in the grey-cast version and I've noted that Kapital has a all (triple?) indigo version now too: indigo warp/weft denim and indigo sashiko stitching. Maybe I'll see these on S&S site...?

    Those Oakabilly's are looking damn good.

    We should be getting stock in the grey/indigo soon, and I'm not sure if we can have the triple indigo in the US. Kapital can be challenging to work with.

    Found this gem while searching for more information on some Real McCoy's products. Bill Dudley - best fashion blogger of 1937.

    Great! I'm definitely interested in the grey/indigo.

    It's going to be 12-6pm - we've got Pete & Tony coming out to talk denim, and we should have some nice cold beers on-hand.

    It's also a good excuse to see the ridiculous amount of new stuff we have for spring/summer, including our first Real McCoy's delivery.

    I'm really fond of Tellason. Have a few pairs of their jeans in Ankara and Sheffield cuts, as well as the indigo canvas in the slim tapered (Ladbroke)? I mean to try their Elgin at some point, assuming that's the slim tapered mid-rise.

    Great no-nonsense products, simple and well constructed. And I like their Cone denims. Also seems like Pete and Tony are really hands on in the business (assuming they aren't having people sign their names to notes in the packages or send emails for them... ;) )

    They're very hands-on - I run into them at their factory sometimes, and when I go to pick up orders at their HQ, they're right up in there packing boxes.

    Hey @StrangeJeremy any of these Chups sold in the L size? I'm a size 13 and the "one-size" fit never works for me.

    These are the L size - 9-12 - you'd need an XL, which I asked when we met with them in Tokyo, and the answer was no. I have found that the non-fair isle styles are less densely knit and work better on my giant feet.
